Fishko Files from WNYC

William Bolcom

August 3, 20167 min
American composer William Bolcom's compositions are widely performed and recorded; he's written music of every type, comfortably mixing styles and genres. As WNYC's Sara Fishko tells us, Bolcom was, and is, a careful, passionate music-listener as well, and what he listens to tells us a lot about the history of music, both high and low. Here is the next Fishko Files. (Produced in 2006)
William Bolcom's Songs of Innocence and of Experience (William Blake) is available for purchase at
